with -- weekend, president obama talks about the observations made by president -- servicemen and servicewomen. there is a republican address. he talks about the impact of the health care law since its implementation. >> hello, everybody. veterans day weekend is a chance for all of us to state two simple words -- thank you. thank you to that greatest generation who fought island by island across the pacific to free millions from fascism in europe. thank you to the heroes who risked everything through the bitter cold of korea and stifling heat of vietnam. thank you to all the heroes who have served, most recently our 9/11 generation of veterans from iraq and afghanistan. now that more of them are coming home, we need to serve them as well as they serve us, and that requires more than a simple thank you, especially from those of us who have been elected to serve. i have often said that my top priority is growing the economy, creating jobs, and restoring middle-class security, and a very important part of that is making sure every veteran has every chance to share in the opportunity he or she has
: democrats have figured out that this is the way to win elections. barack obama now terry mcauliffe used it very effectively. if you look at the demographics of who elected terry mcauliffe, look at the cohort for unmarried women. i think he won that by 40%. it's ridiculous. clearly, those ads targeting ken cucinelli saying he is opposed to abortion even in cases of rape and incest, these issues when they are run over and over hit home. chris christie was not a victim of this. i just wrote a piece where i think he needs to be very careful. he gets in the face of teachers and says to do your job. imagine him doing that in davenport, iowa to a teacher and imagine that teacher big coming and that could be the start of a war on women. if chris christie has -- uses his confrontational style which is fun now, you can see very easily how they could take some teacher and make them into a cause celebre and chris christie could be a bully and not in a good way. host: these are the exit polls out of virginia. look at the female vote -- terry mcauliffe got 51% of the female vote. ken cucinelli got
's explore enacting the mandatory savings contained in president obama's own budget. president obama has outlined budget savings in the entitlement programs that were courageous, difficult, but they do not cut benefits. these proposals do not cut social security. they do not cut medicaid. no one is suggesting, as has been alluded to, suggested by some members of this conference committee that there is a proposal to slash benefits or cut benefits. all we're talking about and all the president is talking about in the mandatory proposed savings in his own budget is slowing the growth rate of these very important programs to save our nation from a fiscal and debt crisis and to save the very valuable programs. i think those are the sweet spot. tax reform to give us economic growth and savings in the growth rate of our mandatory programs. i hope we can rise to the occasion and be problem solvers for the american people. >> thank you. senator kaine. >> thank you. good to be with colleagues on this. one thing i want to do is confound the cynics who have low expectations of us. there have been ye

like that. i wish the obama administration would see despite this to domestic,- the political things, there are many areas where we can continue to leverage our common interests. i wish it were less attenuated than it is. i'm hopeful here in the final few years a president obama's presidency that he will deploy the secretary of state, state department to leverage the holy see's voice in these fundamental principles of religious freedom, human unity, opposing autocratic governments. host: are you saying that the vatican and holy see has taken a position on what we are doing with the affordable care act? cardinals in the u.s. have taken a strong position on the affordable care act. that is probably caused -- i would assume that's part of the chill and lack of enthusiasm for engaging the holy see on the part of the administration. george bush had a huge administration for working with the holy see. this administration has been a bit more reticent. host: is there an ambassador currently? guest: there is. wasame from baltimore, involved with catholic charities for many years, knows his wa
those workers? >> absolutely. when president obama came into office he wanted to make sure we were negotiating trade agreements that were, the benefits would be broadly shared and where we recognize that we need to take care of anybody who is displaced. that is why we have insisted that the trade adjustment assistance be part of the practice. it expires in two months. it is always been linked to trade promotion authority. our hope is congress takes up trade promotion authority, that they will marry it with trade adjustment assistance so we can move this forward. let me say one more word about that -- trade promotion authority there is a lot of misinformation. it is the mechanism by which congress gives us our marching orders. they tell us what to negotiate, how to work with them during negotiations, and what the conditions will be under which they will consider an agreement to approve or disapprove it. we work closely with congress throughout every trade negotiation, hand in glove. trade promotion authority is the way that gets structured. this has been part of our overall trade ag
that is poised to take over 16% of our economy -- the health care sector. president obama said he did not know any of this stuff was going to happen. he said that he had no idea that these problems were coming. we had kathleen sebelius come and say that everything was ready to go. here is the issue -- if you outlaw the kind of insurance people actually have, they won't be able to keep those plans. they passed a law three years ago to outlaw the kinds of insurance that people have in -- and they are surprised that people don't have them? we talked about that in the 2010 elections. we talked about it in the 2012 elections. we heard all of the soaring rhetoric and all of these problems and now we see what is happening. the way i see it, there are only two explanations. either they were being dishonest or they are just incompetent. frankly, i don't know which one is the worse. i think the left -- i think they are learning a pretty valuable lesson here. i think the valuable lesson that we are learning here, unfortunately, with all the human collateral damage with the obamacare debacle is that you d

at their own choice, their own choice, not at president obama's choice, and then did nothing virtually to help. it's no wonder some of them aren't working, but today, we're going to have an opportunity to talk to those governors, both republicans and democrats that did step up and lead, did take what was offered to them and set up exchanges that would work for their small businesses. each state has the flexibility to decide how they want to operate their health insurance marketplaces. as you can see on this map, there are four different categories that each of the 50 states and the district of columbia fit into. some states have federally facilitated exchanges, which means they are leaving it to the federal government, unfortunately, that would be mine. i wish i had been given that choice, but that was one mistake in the bill, leaving it up to governors, maybe not a mistake, but in some cases it was, it seems. other states are operating partnership exchanges where the federal government operates the marketplace in conjunction with the state. some states chose to do a partnership with the feder
also intending to vote for barack obama. my numbers consistent last year have shown that more than one out of every 10 voters in the state shows up on the list for me in support and also for barack obama. politically, that makes no sense whatsoever. ideologically, right, except that our bases, are both of our parties, partisan opposition, of the opposing party, but the people in the middle, for those folks that are the persuadable, whatever-you-want-to-call-them voters, ironically, if a significant number of them supported me and the president, they felt they were for something. it may not be consistent ideologically, but it was something where they said but their opponents did not fill the void, they made the election about i'm not scott walker, i hate scott walker, in some ways the republican nominee was the same. in the case of the center, what they wanted was candidates that ran their way on issues, he wanted people who wanted to lead. >> thanks for being here, governor. so you and other governors who have conservative views of lawmakers in washington, like bobby jindal, who say th
